The impact of the lockdown caused by the corona epidemic is hurting the hearts and minds of children. Because of not being out of homes for a long time, children have started feeling very troublesome. Children's schools are already closed after the lockdown. They are also unable to meet their friends. Due to this, they are also falling prey to stress. Increased stress can also cause depression. Psychologists say that parents should be especially vigilant and watch their movements to protect children from the mental side effects of corona. Parents should be cautious if the child is becoming irritable, is not eating and drinking properly, and is also observing changes in his sleep-wake time.
1. Spend time with children
The entire family is forced to stay in the lockdown. By always staying in one place, someone starts having problems. The nature of children is such that they cannot stay in one place. It is understandable how much problem they must be facing in this condition. So spend as much time with children as possible. During this, try to convince them that this situation will not always be there.
2. Create a routine
If you make a routine for children, it can benefit greatly. Children can follow him on a routine. This creates a sense of responsibility in them. Children do not feel like doing any work. You can make time for children to read, play, watch TV and do other things.
3. Give healthy food to children
In lockdown, make sure that the food and drink of the children is good. Often when children are depressed, they do not pay attention to food and drink. If children do not eat and drink properly, their immunity may be weak. So give them food on time. Green vegetables, pulses, milk and fruits must be included in their diet.
4. Teach Exercise
Often children do not need to exercise, because they do a lot of exercise in running. But the physical activity of children in lockdown is almost closed. So ask them to exercise. You have to tell them what exercises they should do and how to do it.
5. Focus on studies
Often children do not pay attention to studies as school and tuition are closed. If they stay away from books for a long time then they can be left behind in studies. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to their studies as well. If possible, you should sit for them every day and see how far they have completed their studies in the syllabus. Children's teachers can also be contacted over the phone from time to time and children can be talked to them.
